Are Pearls All Round, Juwelen Design by Ivy Teong with Amber Chia, Malaysia's Top Model a.k.a. Brand Ambassador and other models in Berita Harian newspaper dated 1 Mar 2017.
A perfect round pearls are extremely rare. This is because the shape of the pearl is determined by a number of highly variable factors which occur inside the oyster as the pearl is developing. However, it is the most desirable shape sought after. It is also traditionally command the highest price in the trade.
As pearls are organic gemstones, they can occur in a wide variety of shapes, of which some are quite unique and interesting. The shapes of the pearl can be described as Round, Near-Round, Oval, Button, Drop, Semi-Baroque, Baroque, Bar, Cross, Coin, Circled, Keshi, Biwa and other irregular shapes.
Pearls reflect femininity at its most luminous that give a gloss, a certain refinement to the wearer. People can dazzle in diamonds, but it takes a certain type of woman to be a girl in pearls. No other gem is more lambent, or richly and resonantly symbolic of luxury, of beauty, of the paradoxes of femininity itself. An emblem of innocence and purity that has the swagger of the most knowing decadence, the pearl coruscates with magic and metaphor.
Pearls focus is on the intrinsic beauty of a miraculous natural phenomenon, the pearl itself. For the imaginative, pearls can be a metaphor – for the changing of an irritant into a thing of beauty and, by extension, how to turn a misfortune into something beneficial. Unlike other jewels, a pearl is a treasure grown inside a living creature that comes from the sea rather than being mined from the land.
The reason for the luster and iridescence that are a pearl’s distinguishing features is the reflection of light through these layers, almost mirror-like. The layers of nacre of which a pearl is composed are absorbent, so that external factors can influence their condition and even color. Thus they improve with wear, picking up faint traces of oil from your skin that gives them an added gleam. So would you favor pearl necklace, pearl earrings, pearl bracelet or even pearl ring?
